Anyone who thinks about waste in Tilburg thinks of the Brabant Waste Team (BAT). BAT is a member of Midwaste, a cooperative association of regional waste and cleaning companies. Thirteen members, Dutch municipalities, are part of the collaboration. Together we strive for the most sustainable treatment and processing of textiles.


For more than a century, BAT has been ensuring that waste is collected from companies and institutions and processed sustainably. They are partners in circular thinking, collecting and having waste processed. Their vision is therefore to collect waste sustainably and to ensure that it’s optimally reused or recycled. In this way they contribute to a clean and pleasant living environment. This fits with Wolkat, where discarded textiles are not seen as discarded, but as valuable. We optimize value in every step of the textile recycling chain, from reuse as a piece of clothing to raw material for a new product for the fashion, automotive or furniture industry.

The BAT is responsible for the collection of household waste from more than 95,000 households in the municipality of Tilburg. Surrounding municipalities also use their services.

We are very happy to be able to work with BAT as a proud Tilburg company and we look forward to all the good things that the future will bring!
